Students from 30 world countries presented their traditional cultures and cuisines. Among the distinguished guests were representatives of the embassies of Vietnam, Mongolia, Afghanistan, countries of Latin America, and the Republic of the Union of Myanmar.
NUST MISIS scientists have developed a technology of copper, nickel, and molybdenum extraction from ore concentrates, which will allow for a dramatic reduction in the production cost of non-ferrous metals, while at the same time improving the ecology in the area of processing plants.
On April 14th, 2017, during the 72 Days of Science at NUST MISIS, the university held an open lecture “The Translation Industry in Russia and Market Possibilities for Young Translators” delivered by Ekaterina Sadikova, head of the Department on Work with Contractors at ABBYY Language Solutions.
Scientists from NUST MISIS have created a methodology that can become the basis of a fundamentally new method of antibacterial therapy. It has broad opportunities for use in dentistry, maxillo facial surgery, the treatment of ENT diseases, and other medical fields. The created oxide nanoparticles of iron, zinc, titanium, and other metals in dental materials have a unique property: they work as antibiotics without side effects.
From March 28th to 30th, the International Arctic Forum “Arctic: Territory of Dialogue” was held in Arkhangelsk. The Forum is one of the main 4 economic forums in Russia, as well as the largest platform for joint discussion with international partners of current issues and prospects of development in the Arctic region. The central theme of the 2017 Forum was “People and the Arctic”.
A group of Russian scientists has successfully tested the implants of chancellor bones based on ultra-high-molecular-weight polyethylene (UHMWPE): 100% of implanted samples have been successfully grafted.
For the first time ever, the representative of a family of 2D substances — copper oxide — was experimentally obtained. The substance has already demonstrated some unusual properties which can not only expand the field of experiments with graphene, but also can set a new direction in microelectronics. An article on the achievement of the scientists from NUST MISIS, FSBI TISNCM, IBCP RAS, and international colleagues from NIMS (Japan) was published in the prestigious journal NanoScale.
On March 17th, 2017, NUST MISIS presented the strategy of the University`s development at the meeting of The Council on Competitiveness Enhancement of Leading Russian Universities among Global Research and Education Centers. The strategy’s 2016 results, presented by NUST MISIS, received high praise from the Council`s experts.
NUST MISIS and EuroChem have signed a general agreement of long-term cooperation to institute a training program of highly skilled specialists in the field of mining & technology, as well as the implementation of fundamental and applied research in mining & engineering works.
Physicists have simulated the structure of a new material based on fullerite and single crystal diamond to show how this material can obtain ultrahigh hardness. This discovery allows the estimations the potential conditions for obtaining ultrahard materials. The results were published in the Carbon journal.
For the first time, NUST MISIS has entered the QS World University Rankings by Subject and is now featured in 4 of 46 subjects featured in this year`s edition: Engineering-Mineral & Mining, Materials Science, Physics & Astronomy, and Engineering-Mechanical, Aeronautical & Manufacturing. Among these four subjects, NUST MSIS ranked best in Engineering-Mineral & Mining, taking 31st among all universities in the ranking. Among all of the university-participants of Project 5-100, NUST MISIS is the only university present in the Engineering-Mineral & Mining and Materials Science rankings.
Humanity has faced a number of completely new problems when increasing the speed of transmitting information. Waves, flying through matter at high speeds, initiate the generation of secondary radiation, which interferes with a signal’s linear energy transmission, scattering it. Scientists at NUST MISIS are working to better understand, strengthen, and use this nonlinear system response. An article on the results of their studies has already been published in Scientific Reports.
Sergey Legotin, a Candidate of Technical Sciences and an Associate Professor at the NUST MISIS Department of Semiconductor Electronics and Semiconductor Physics, and Andrey Krasnov, a PhD Student at NUST MISIS, have received the 2016 Moscow Government Award for young scientists. Their project, aimed at the development of betavoltaic converters for an independent power supply in the category “Aviation and Space Technology”, has already received 1 million Rubles.
NUST MISIS became the first university to fully automate work with students` academic records through ABBYY technology. This allowed the university to process more than 10,000 academic records during winter exams. ABBYY technology was also widely used by NUST MISIS during the 2016 admission campaign.
On February 27th, 2017, at a meeting between Alevtina Chernikova, the Rector of NUST MISIS, and Nuriddin Said, the Republic of Tajikistan`s Minister of Education & Science, an agreement was reached to establish a new department to train mining engineers at the NUST MISIS branch in Dushanbe.
On February 26th, 2017, NUST MISIS became a platform where schoolchildren and students could touch their future with their own hands. The project organizers, Digital Banana, operating through the support of NUST MISIS, held the large-scale event, which attracted 30 companies specializing in innovations in IT, biomedicine, and modeling to attend. The companies presented both their opportunities and needs to the eager students.
